Cellulose: Environmentally Friendly Insulation

When it comes to protecting the environment, no other building insulation comes close to cellulose insulation. It has a wide variety of inherent environmentally beneficial characteristics. Take a few minutes to better understand why and it becomes the building insulation of choice for building industry professionals and consumers interested in conserving energy, saving money and lowering environmental impacts.

There are many ways a building product can be eco-friendly and environmentally beneficial. Cellulose insulation excels in all the key areas:
  • The higher the recycled content of the raw material used to make the product has a huge influence on the environment. Cellulose insulation is up to 85% recycled paper
  • The amount of energy required to manufacture the product has a direct impact on the environment. Cellulose insulation has the lowest embodied energy of the leading insulation products.
  • The shipping distance from the factory to the consumer impacts the environment. Cellulose insulation is produced regionally and has generally shorter shipping distances lowering resulting fuel emissions.
  • Having a renewable natural resource for the raw material influences the environmental aspects of the product. Cellulose insulation is made from consumer paper products, which are tied to responsible forestry management and a highly renewable resource of planted trees.
